Here the Pennsylvania Visitors Network
introduces you to the heart of Pennsylvania. In this Central PA region you'll find covered bridges, tree-sheltered streams, and little Victorian towns. This is the home of The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State)and the their Nittany Lions. The Horseshoe Curve in Blair County
is one of PA's engineering marvels. Take the funicular to the top of the hill and get a great view of the trains whizzing by. And while we're on the topic of good views, we recommend stopping at the Johnstown Incline, (in Cambria County
), the steepest in the world. It'll give you a great view of the city below. You'll also learn about the infamous Johnstown Flood at the Johnstown Flood National Memorial.
Towns in the area include Altoona, Bedford, Bellefonte, Huntingdon, Johnstown, Lewistown, McConnellsburg, Mifflintown and State College.
